I was wishing for bad things to happen to them long before the supreme court got involved.

SCOTUS ruled according to the constitution, if they would have ruled otherwise... there goes even more freedom in this country. There are groups out there such as the Patriot Guards: http://www.patriotguard.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, that protect the funerals and prevent these lunatics from getting anywhere close to them. I heard one of their members on a radio show, and they said the best compliment they get is when the family of the deceased comes to them and asks them if the WBC members even showed up. These heroes guard our heroes. :patriot:

I understand the ruling but I still hate how that church uses free speech.

I still find it appalling that radical groups like this continue to claim free speech to spit in the face of the people that very literally gave everything in order for free speech to exist.

I am not only surprised this has not happened, but I am certain that it will at some point. The real shame is that when it DOES happen, the hero that shuts these idiots up will be the one who is going to be on trial. :wall: :furious: :wall: :furious:

I loathe them and hope they get what is coming to them, but I have to say the Supreme Court was correct. It should never be illegal to hurt someone's feelings in this country. That would create a country that can choose which things are offensive and which are not which is more dangerous than a couple hundred idiots in a Church that has no national following.

Sad excuse for a Church. I know if someone I was close to died and they showed up at the funeral I would be going to jail.

Poor excuse for a Church. I have read that most of their income come from successfully suing people they incite into doing stupid ( but understandable ) things. Some of the family are lawyers so little expense there. I just hope that when Phelps dies, people from all over the country gather at his funeral to celebrate. Party on :clap:

I am not too surprised it hasn't happened yet, and I don't think it will happen in the future. Most of the people in this country are law abiding, and know that purposely running someone over with their car is a crime. As must as these idiots are despicable, they are not worth spending years of your life in prison.

As hard as it is, ignore these fools. When they stop getting attention, they will move on to something probably more despicable.

Now if someone is driving by them and has a car malfunction... (and I am not recommending or suggesting this course of action)

A group that protest the wbc protesters http://www.patriotguard.org/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Seems to be mostly comprised of veterans but service is not a requirement for membership (neither is riding a motorcycle). They shield the funerals with flags & sheer numbers, with patriotic songs or motorcycle revving to drown out the chants from the wbc. They do so at the request of the families and are considered guests of the funeral.

They are there for anyone who has served - military, police, firefighters, emts & so on...

My idea was to go rent a Septic Vacuum Truck... a "full" septic vacuum truck. Figure out a way to hook the discharge hose to a high pressure nozzle, and then proceed to do a drive-by dousing of raw sewage on their protest. Seems fitting.

A family just lost 7 children in a house fire in Perry County (just above where I live in Harrisburg, PA) and the funeral for their children is on Tuesday, and these idiots are planning on protesting at the funeral. Pretty much everyone was talking about this at work today, and a few people had started a group called "the circle of love" or something like that (all people from central PA) and they plan on surrounding this group at the funeral and just to drown them out. People around this area are also waiting to see if someone just flat out shoots one of them, or at the minimum starts a fight since Perry County is a low population, very rural, and very redneck, close knit type of place. I could only wish someone does, might make them stop protesting in the future too.

Why in the hell would they protest kids killed in fire? Other than publicity I mean...

I know I said that the Patriot Guard is for any one in a service capacity but I would still recommend contacting them. The worst they could do is say no. From what I have read on their website, I'd bet on them showing up if they are contacted. I would.

Septic tank truck is a good idea but it would have to at least appear to an accident.

They protest anything that gives them attention...The amish girsl that got killed a few years ago, Heath Ledger, military, any famous gay that dies, pretty much anyone that the public cares about that dies they will go and protest at the funeral.

I truly wish they would stop calling them selves Christian, or even Baptist. They are neither.
